from metro: More grave sites have been discovered at a ranch where mass murderer Charles Manson lived. Investigators had always feared that Manson and his band of followers - the Manson Family - may have carried out more killings. It is thought more bodies may be buried at the ranch where Manson, now 73, went into hiding after his cult's killings... One Manson Family member, Susan Atkins, is said to have told her cell mate that there were "three people out in the desert that they done in".
A team of forensic experts has returned to the site with a specially trained dog and the latest technology. The group of experts, from California State University and Tennessee's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, used a magnetometer – an instrument that can see underground... Marc Wise, an Oak Ridge researcher, said: "There's definitely something down there." The scientists want the sites to be excavated... Manson convinced his followers to carry out the murder spree. He is currently in prison and is not eligible for parole until 2012.
